Author spotlight: Nalini Singh

19 November 2010

Nalini Singh was first published in 2002. During that time she has published six books with Silhouette and 10 with Berkley (in addition to contributing to three Berkley anthologies) with many of her books translated into German, Japanese, French, Italian and Spanish.

Angels’ Blood, Branded by Fire, Blaze of Memory and Must Love Hellhounds all recently won ParaNormal Romance group Paranormal Excellence Awards in Romantic Literature. Five of Nalini’s books reached the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists, of which four were also included in the Publishers Weekly bestseller list.

Mine to Possess was nominated for Favourite Paranormal Romance for 2008 in the Australian Romance Readers Awards, and Nalini was received four nominations in the 2009 awards: two nominations in the Favourite Parnormal Romance category with Blaze of Memory and Branded by Fire, winning Favourite Sci-Fi, Fantasy or Futuristic Romance for Angels’ Blood and winning the Favourite Continuing Romance Series category for the Psy/Changeling series.

Nalini lives in Auckland, New Zealand.

When we turned the spotlight on Nalini, here’s what she had to say…

Have you attended one of ARRA’s events before?

This will be my first ARRC and I’m so looking forward to it. I attended the Awards Dinner earlier this year and had an absolutely wonderful time.

What are you most looking forward to at ARRC2011?

Meeting with and talking to readers!
What do you have coming up next?

My next release is Archangel’s Consort, which is the third Guild Hunter book. Continuing the story of Elena and her archangel, Raphael, this book throws all kinds of secrets wide open.

If anyone would like to read an excerpt, the first chapter is available on my website:

Which of your books is your favourite?

I don’t think I could ever choose a favorite book or character – every book and each character is a favorite in one way or another. However both Desert Warrior and Slave to Sensation undoubtedly mark turning points in my career. Desert Warrior was my first ever published book, and Slave to Sensation was my very first paranormal release–and the book that began the Psy-Changeling series.

If you haven’t indulged yourself yet, try one of Nalini’s books soon:

    Hi Everyone! Thanks for the lovely comments. I’m really looking forward to catching up with you at ARRC 2011. Buffie, maybe I’ll see you in NY!

      Aww, thanks Nalini. I don’t think I’ll be making NYC next year. But if you ever have a stop over in Atlanta, just let me know.

    Hi Nalini
    I’m really looking forward to meeting you at the Conference. If it’s at all like the first one, you’ll have a ball! Love the Psy/Changeling series and absolutely ADORE the Hunters Guild series. Both series never make it to my TBR pile, as I devour them as soon as they arrive from Lucy, lol

    Hi Nalini – your Play of Passion is at the top of my TBR pile, I have school reports to finish up first and I know if I start your book then I will have some explaining to do to my boss about why reports are so late. The excuse “I was reading this really good book” will not cut it with her LOL.
    Can’t wait to see you at the conference! Good luck!!

    Lami 😉

    I recently started reading the Psy-Changeling series and I understand why it’s so popular. I’ve joined the large group of people waiting impatiently for Hawke’s story.

    Hi Nalini 🙂 and thanks, Debbie, for the spotlight. I love the slide show of covers. Gorgeous!

    Everyone who will be attending this event is in for a real treat! Not only is Nalini a fabulous (FAB-U-LOUS!) writer, but she is such a sweet and kind person. I enjoyed meeting her at RWA in Orlando this summer. I have enjoyed Nalini’s Psy/Changeling series so much and was in awe when I finally met her in person.

    Sure wish I could make the journey to Oz to enjoy this wonderful weekend!

        Oh Helen, I so wish I could do it. My birthday is in March and it’s a big one (40!). I told my hubby I wanted to go to this conference as my gift, but alas he just smirked at my suggestion.

        I know that we would have so much fun together! Maybe one day we can meet in person.
